Description Edit

In the Japanese art of origami, a simple piece of paper can be transformed into a crane, an elephant or even Santa Claus. Equally subtle, stirring a few Japanese ingredients into roughly mashed California avocado creates a new taste sensation.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Toss daikon with salt; just drain in a colander for half an hour.
  2. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible; then reserve.
  3. Coarsely mash avocados. Fold with the remaining ingredients and reserved daikon.
  4. Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap against the surface of the guacamole. Use as a dip for chips, cooked meat, poultry, or seafood.
